It’s Santa!

I made a little, toy Santa Claus for Edda. Actually, it’s for Christmas decorating but Edda doesn’t really understand that… So it is now Edda’s Santa. At least, until she forgets about it and I pack it into the Christmas decoration box while she’s not looking.

The pattern is from Itty Bitty Toys by Susan B. Anderson. I seem to be knitting a lot of things by her. I really do like her designs!

He’s a cutie. He was kind of tedious to make because of all the little details (beard embroidery?!), but I feel like without all the detail stuff he wouldn’t look so nice and “finished.” I wish there had been more picture of him to help with the sewing together, so I took a few for the benefit of others.

An up-close of the beard/face:

(Oops, I accidentally left off his mustache!)

About Jessi

I'm married. I'm a mom of two. I love dogs and almost all other animals. I like to think about things for a long time. I like all crafts (except scrapbooking. ugh.) I like running. I like cooking and baking. I analyze everything. I stress out too much. I like coffee. I love having a husband that tells me to chill out. I'm thankful for a God that loves me in spite of my many failures.

    Wow! I admire your finishing skills! I LOVE making Itty Bitty anything and also knit dolls from her new Spud and Chloe book, BUT it is so tedious putting all the tiny parts together! It drives me batty! My kids love it when I knit them items like this, they’re 9yo and 6yo, but I wish it was as easy to make it all up as it is to knit! I applaud you, that Santa is beautiful and someday Edda will soooo appreciate it, especially if she becomes a knitter, too.
